Quote

“For Wolfgang Laib, the pollen, like the milk, beeswax, rice, and marble, is a material with properties that extend beyond his individual powers of invention; and he accepts this, playing the role of mediator rather than creator, combining organic materials that have invisible energies—perhaps even healing powers.” Clare Farrow Parkett No. 39, 1994
